So I paid 499 for this plus the installation fee to the man. All well and good. Of course now I get slightly less amount of channels of cr4p to choose from.
More and more I notice cooking programs and other such junk .... nothing interesting ... more repeats of ancient films ....
Now the past few days my picture is starting to freeze for a couple of seconds periodically all the time on all channels.
I try reinstalling, rescanning to no avail.
Do I now go and buy yet another receiver to watch more channels of rubbish ...... oh the pain and anguish I feel ...
I'm toying with DV-S this time but of course when I research it I see that almost every box I research has some sort of problem. WHY IS THIS ???? What is so difficult about creating a set top box ? Why do we seem to get inferior products ? I don't get it - apart from maybe the answer is "because they can" (get away with it).
I've spent a lot on these products to watch inferior tv and hate the thought of having to pay a few hundy for another seeming high-spec'd product to find I will have to do it again in a years time.
